“Plastic Surgery- More boomer men try nips, tucks”
(Miami Herald Cover Story Features Dr. Epstein)

Herald Columnist Ana Veciana-Suarez turned to Dr. Epstein for a front page story on the growth in plastic surgery for men. According to Epstein, for whom 70% of his patients are men, “For the baby boomer generation, looking good and looking young has always been very important”. To explain the 25% increase in patients from the same time last year, he attributed the improvement in the economy, stating “There’s pent up demand. I think there was a lot of job insecurity at one point and people weren’t willing to spend the money.”

Specializing in surgical hair restoration and facial plastic surgery, Dr. Epstein has seen particular growth in the demand for facial rejuvenation procedures (face and necklifts, eyelid surgery, hair restoration) and rhinoplasty. Most procedures are performed in his accredited office operating rooms, where patients can be assured a private and comfortable experience.
